    Who said or implied that it's not ok to post if you're not an athiest? I don't speak for all but I think the point that FITB and I are trying to make is that sometimes, however remotely small the possibilty, amazing things happen. Just because the odds of these things happening are miniscule doesn't mean they will never happen. We just don't get the leap from something amazing happened therefore there is a god.

    If your not religious why even post? Honestly? Is it just to criticise or Just to tell those who want to teach their children what they believe in their heart and mind to be true that they are brainwashing them, robbing them of a childhood?

    I believe the best thing i can do for my child is to teach her about God and the bible.

    I know I said I was 'out'

    but just wanted to reply to this -

    Just because someone doesn't subscribe to the doctrines of a religion doesn't mean they don't have an opinion on religion.

    Their 'religous belief' is just that - an opinion on religion/spirtuality etc. and how it affects communities.

    Excuse me? Being not religious is a belief actually. I have very strong BELIEFS about religion. I actually can't believe you posted that. So by you're thinking, unless you follow an organised religion you don't have a belief? One doesn't have to believe in god to have opinions and beliefs about religion.

    DH was raised and schooled catholic. I am agnostic/spiritual.

    We're not baptising our children.

    I fundamentally disagree with the idea that she was born in sin and that she needs salvation. I couldn't be passive in having her baptised innbbchjujkk

    I understood it to be exactly as it says. Religious beliefs. Me being agnostic is a belief. Raising my child that way is imposing my beliefs. The end.

    I impose all sorts of beliefs on my child. I believe that eating meat is wrong. I raise her in the same way. I believe that it's not ok to leave a baby in a room crying and walk away. I raise her to understand this as well. I believe that it's important to have an understanding all religions and customs, so I raise her to be aware of these. I challenge anyone who says they do not impose their beliefs on their children, or raise them in the way they feel is the right way.

    Religious beliefs? No. They can ask, and I will tell them, but I won't involve them in my faith until they ask the question. And I have enough integrity that I don't feel disturbed by a stranger's challenge, so challenge away .

    I don't feel that it's up to me to tell someone what the very core of their existence should be based on. I would never be so arrogant as to assume that I'm right when it comes to matters of religion. The Christians could be right, the Muslims could be right, the Jews, Mormons... Heck, even the Jedi's could be right!
    So when my kids DO ask me about my faith, and about what I believe in I will explain it to them. But I will also explain that there are many varied and interesting religions out there and that they should research as many as they can before they decide on one (or not at all, that's their choice too).

    I understand that you're talking about other beliefs regarding eating meat and crying babies, but that wasn't what the OP was about.
